Dine out and help the homeless

Kelowna residents who want to help the homeless but lack the time to get involved now have another way to contribute.

Kelowna residents who want to help the homeless but lack the time to get involved now have another way to contribute.

Dine out at a local restaurant once a month and the proceeds will go to support shelter services at Inn from the Cold Kelowna.

“Our Dining Out To Help The Homeless series was a great success last year. By gathering a group of people to eat at one local restaurant each month, we were able to help a lot of homeless people by providing them warm, safe shelter, a warm meal, and outreach support services,” explained Tara Tschritter, coordinator at Inn from the Cold.

“We know that Kelowna cares about its most vulnerable citizens and people want to help. This gives everyone an easy way to get involved—and in return they get a great meal at some fabulous local restaurants.”

Olympia Greek Taverna will host the first Dining Out event on Monday, Sept. 19. Tickets for the three course dinner are $30 each. On Oct. 25, Cabana Grille will open its doors to provide a sumptuous two-course meal for $25.

Future dinners will include Boston Pizza (November), Minstrel Café (January) and Moxies (February).  Event Information and tickets can be obtained at www.KelownaCares.com.

Anyone interested in donating raffle and door prizes for these events can call the shelter at 250 448-6403, or email iftckelowna@gmail.com

Inn from the Cold Kelowna is a volunteer-based registered charity operating a minimal barrier co-ed shelter to provide warm, compassionate and safe refuge for both men and women in Kelowna.
